Acts of Knitting and Nerdery

I’m just a little excited that my favorite Doctor is back with new episodes on September 1st. I seriously love me some Doctor Who.

So do a lot of other knitters, apparently. And how to knitters express their love for the Doctor? They knit stuff inspired by the series. Much of it is delightfully silly, right in keeping with the silliness of being in a time traveling vintage police box that’s bigger in the inside with a half mad Time Lord. When I run across one of these fan knits, I typically squeal a bit, make a mental note that I should make whatever it is for my friend Drew, whose Whovian tendencies put me absolutely to shame, then forget all about it.

I have no Doctor Who knitting projects of my own to share, but in honor of the premiere, I’ve pulled together a collection of some of the best out there. Fair warning, there are lots, ranging from common to utterly obscure. LOTS.
